Default 10.3.10 v 10.3.7

I'm running 7. Pretty fine, but have the regular "running out of memory" warning and a few crashes now and then. Is it worth it to go to 10? More stable?

Hi,


Run Activity monitor > memory usage. all the time

Details here...


https://www.macworld.co.uk/how-to/ma...m-mac-3681038/



And when PT shows 3GB or just above then run memory cleaner app...


https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/memo...ign-mpt=uo%3D8


Some processes don't release the memory after use and it builds up to levels that exceeds PT's ability to run without error messages. but running activity monitor and viewing the memory usage you can see when its approaching the 3GB area then clean. PT can usually go to about 3.4GB but after 3GB it can show errors.


I found some plugins will use memory when opened and won't release the memory back for use, so memory cleaner will release this un-used memory back to the PT pool etc

Hi Chris,

I just downloaded two small apps from the app store (about 1$ each) which both seem to work OK on 10.8.5

Memory Optimizer and Booster by cokesoft

and Free Memory by ftosoft.

I think I prefer the first one, seems to do the job.

Thanks again for the help!

Cheers, Bob.

Or you just quit and re-start PT. It is what I tend to do when it happens. It's pretty rare for me but usually starts at around 2.8GB
